Smokey Chicken Sandwich

I have been getting many things done today, yeah! I hope you are also enjoying your weekend. Next Sunday is J and I's 2nd anniversary! I am excited because we will be going to San Clemente and staying 2 nights at a neat hotel to celebrate. I am ready for him to come home, 6 more days!

Speaking of weddings, I helped host a briday shower for my childhood friend, Katie Passmore, while I was home. It was so fun to see her again. The shower was beautiful and the food was great! Here are some photos.

It was held at Yana's a cute cafe in Odessa.

 I put these on my menu to try out in a few weeks. They were so good, I hope I can recreate them!


Smokey Chicken Sandwich
For Chicken:
2-4 Chicken tenders (depending on how big they are)
3 chipotle peppers in adobe sauce
1/4 cup sour cream
2 Tbsp oil
1/2 tsp seasoning salt
In a food processor, blend sour cream, peppers and salt.

While blending, slowly add oil to food processor.

Add marinate to chicken. Close bag and marinate for at least 1 hour before cooking.

For sandwich:
1 cup panko
lettuce
tomatoes
hoagie rolls
Cilantro lime dressing (click here for recipe)
softened butter
optional: sliced swiss cheese
Take out your stresses on the chicken! Pound until even and thinned to about 1/4 inch.
Put panko in shallow dish. Remove chicken from bag of marinate, then dredge in panko.
Bake on 375 for 20-25 minutes. These tenders were a lot bigger than usual, we had a lot left over!
Rub softened butter on the rolls and bake for 5 minutes.
Remove from oven. If you want to use cheese, this is the time you should place the cheese on each chicken breast. They will melt from the heat of the chicken.

Slice tomatoes.
Build your sandwich with tomatoes and lettuce.
Then place chicken on the sandwich and drizzle with lots of cilantro lime dressing.

Looks good..and it is! You can also eat this chicken alone, or sliced up over a salad...that sounds good!!
